crowded - this place is way too crowded. lots of little kids that get in the way. especially if it summer and small day. personaly i think its the worst beach in gero. closes out every single wave. max time on a wave is bout 20 secs. good if u want to get quick barrel tho. but if u do u have to get wiped out
